  • so, as many of you may have seen, the spr kit committee has been tasked with reviewing our current kit, for both supplier and design. we have had the current design for around 5 years now and it has served us well […]

  • thursday morning, 5:30am, 22 deg, light winds.  perfect riding conditions.  the picture attached was from this weeks thursday training ride.  it may not look like it, but if you do a count, there are over 80 pe […]

  • so january is pretty much over, the tdu has finished and half the kids are back at school already. it won’t be long now until we have to put lights back on the bike as we head into the cooler months. so before the […]

  • with many of our members away in radelaide for the tour down under, i decided (had no choice) to hop directly over the biggest cycling event in our country and spend time in sydney and brisbane….for work. sydney […]

  • yep, it is that time of year again. the time when if you are not in adelaide then you probably don’t want to be on social media either. there are a number of people that you will need to block on facebook this […]

  • limited internet and limited time means that this update will be pretty limited. there is a lot going on, however, with the crits in full swing in perth and the nationals happening this week in ballarat.  we […]

  • elPrez wrote a new post, spr festive 500 6 months ago

    so this year for something different, we tracked the festive 500 quite closely and put up prizes for the first 2 club men and women. there were a few surprises along the way and a few last minute rides to finish […]

  • i was doing a cupboard clean out this week and found last years festive 500 patch.  i hadn’t removed it from the cardboard and when i did was surprised to see the little poem behind it. “Most lay in bed. […]

  • happy new year. as the year draws to a close, i could go on some sentimental trip about how the club has changed over the years, or how successful it has been at this or that, but i would rather save that for the […]

  • with many a place shutting down for xmas early and many members not working next week, there is a great chance for some extra kilometres.  the rapha 500 on strava is a good challenge but make sure you are a […]

  • so we wrapped this year up with the final committee meeting at the windsor where items were discussed over pizza and drinks.  the main topic was the weather so make sure that you are prepared this weekend for […]

  • numbers for racing have been in decline lately as people, for various reasons, drop out of the competitive aspect of local sport.  for the women’s field, this means that an already small startlist is […]

  • so there were a couple of instances last weekend and even this morning that frustrate the crap out of anyone trying to organise the groups.  it is all about why we split the groups up.  we have been through this s […]

  • just a little housekeeping for the club this week.  while we may be out enjoying a little birdwatching while riding, there are a number of other things that we should be paying attention to.  i was contacted t […]

  • from a results perspective, last weekend was one of the most successful appearances for spr at the tour of margaret river ever. with 3 very competitive teams and 1 not so serious team fielded, there was some very […]

  • the sunday earlybird was cancelled over a year ago due to lack of interest. most sunday’s there were no riders at all. a busy day would have been less than 3. nothing stopping anyone heading out. we just don’t want to advertise anything that we can’t support, or people that read the website think that there is a ride on and no-one turns up,

  • Hotel Funivia (www.hotelfunivia.it) in Bormio, Italy has played host to many of our SPR members over the years and everyone who visits has come away with treasured memories of epic rides, amazing landscapes and […]

  • so the tour of margs is on this weekend, but last weekend another lot of rouleurs headed south for the tour of gracetown.  the great thing about cycling is that there is usually something for everyone.  don’t l […]

    • Is it possible to keep the early hills at 5:30 or 6:00 without cancelling the 7:00 hills ride? There are early rides seven days a week, but only one 7:00 ride on Saturday.

      • the sunday earlybird was cancelled over a year ago due to lack of interest. most sunday’s there were no riders at all. a busy day would have been less than 3. nothing stopping anyone heading out. we just don’t want to advertise anything that we can’t support, or people that read the website think that there is a ride on and no-one turns up,

  • good to see some green on the podium to go with that gold at last weekend’s state championships down in bunbury.  this pic shows the gold medal winners from each division in the road race, but we also had some […]
